    Answered . Georgia does have a standard form for this petition. See link below. You will need to file it in the probate court of the Georgia county where the ward will be living. You will need to obtain certified documents from the original jurisdiction court, you will have to be in good standing with that court, and you will have to post a new bond. Both Fulton and DeKalb probate courts have wonderful staff who may be able to assist you with the process, but they cannot give you legal advice. There are many qualified attorneys in those counties who could help you if you need more assistance.

    Good luck.
